Question about my anti-social clown

Posted By: Nicholas
Date: Monday, 11 December 2000, at 8:39 p.m.

I recently had an unexplained fatality of one of my two 3" clown loaches. Prior to the death, both loaches were out in the open often. Since the death, the surviving loach has become a cave hermit. I have looked in the stores to find him a new companion but could only find two 1" clowns, which I bought and added to the tank. These two small clowns are always playing in the open while my original 3" clown stays in his cave. Should I worry about his health or continue looking for another loach the same size? What if I removed his cave for a few days? I only have 20 gallons which are also occupied by two balas and two silver dollars. Thanks for any advice.
